Just guested on Mary Blue’s Streetlifefm community radio show at Waltham Forest College. Super. Already booked in next week’s and beyond guests. Mary and I are Silver Sounders, pioneer volunteer presenters and dj’s at the radio station. Throughout the year, every Thursday without fail, Mary Blue does her show ” Lifting yourself up to good living” through from 10am until noon.
She asked me about Openstage the volunteer project run by Charlotte Handel at Stratford Theatre. There isn’t a theatre in Waltham Forest so through Up Your Street, seniors travelled over the boundary and joined in the training sessions and the work involved to make the local community feel engaged with TRSE, Theatre Royal Stratford east.
Last night we volunteers at Openstage were treated to tickets for the press night of “Reasons To Be Cheerful”. The theatre was alive with Ian Drury fans and attendants dressed oh so smartly in black and white topped off with red carnation button holes. Well done staff! Well done as usual TRSE!
Oh yes! The performance..Well, I had my Simon Cowell moment…….. In one word?…Torture… There I said it!
